I'll make you happy, baby, just wait and see...for every kiss you give me, I'll give you three...

Hey y'all! How are things out there in your world? We are doing great here...just blowin' and goin'! I am in the middle of re-organizing my craft room, trying to make some sort of order of the chaos, so I haven't been creating much...but I decided to reward myself with a little play time. I mixed some old and new Verve together, combined it with this week's Mojo Monday sketch...and here's what I came up with:


I started with my Melon panel and stamped the hearts background in Melon ink. After I sponged the edges with Melon and Espresso ink, I added glitter to a few random heart centers. I tied the white ribbon around, then adhered to the Kraft panel. I always try to find an excuse to use these pretty crystals, so I added those, then popped the glittered heart up on top. The banner was scored and folded on each end to make it a little shorter, then I adhered it to the heart. Here's a closer look at some of the details:
